Penetration testing of desktop applications

Comprehensive Penetration Testing of Desktop Applications

In today's digital landscape, security is paramount. Desktop applications, often referred to as thick clients, are still playing important role in ensuring operational and business processes in companies. These are most often ERP, CRM, accounting applications, document management and filing services.

Their security is often overlooked, which is why they are an attractive target for cyber attacks. Our comprehensive penetration testing services for desktop applications are designed to identify vulnerabilities, assess risks, and provide actionable recommendations to fortify your software against potential threats.

Our penetration testing process

  • Initial consultation: We begin with a thorough consultation to understand your application's architecture, functionality, and security concerns.

  • Planning and scoping: Our team defines the scope of the test, identifying key areas to focus on based on potential risk factors and business impact.

  • Reconnaissance: We gather information about the application to understand its internal workings and identify potential entry points.

  • Vulnerability analysis: Using advanced tools and manual techniques, we identify vulnerabilities within the application's code, configuration, and deployment.

  • Exploitation: We attempt to exploit the identified vulnerabilities to asses and demonstrate their impact and determine the level of risk they pose.

  • Reporting: We compile our findings into a comprehensive report, detailing each vulnerability, its potential impact, and our recommended remediation steps.

Key areas we test

  • Authentication and authorization: Ensuring that only authorized users can access the application and its data.

  • Data protection: Evaluating encryption and data storage mechanisms to safeguard sensitive information.

  • Input validation: Checking for vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, buffer overflows, and other forms of input manipulation.

  • Session management: Assessing the security of session tokens and the mechanisms in place to prevent session hijacking.

  • Network security: Analyzing the application's communication with servers and other networked resources to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks and data interception.

  • Error handling: Ensuring that error messages do not expose sensitive information or aid attackers in exploiting the application.
